Nominated for the Liebster Award...Check out these other awesome blogs!

Laura Kim, the awesome art teacher at Spalding Drive and the brains behind Art in the Big Green Room (http://www.spaldingart.blogspot.com/) nominated me for the Liebster Award.  What a cool honor.  I looked up what this was and found that the word "liebster" is a German word that means "kindest, beloved, dearest."  I think this is so awesome.  My goal in blogging is to share all aspects of my art teaching, but I do always try to be positive and kind in my teaching and in the way I share my world.  Thank you!

Here are my answers to her questions and some more information:

1. What is your favorite food? oatmeal (and steak and peanut butter)
2. What do you collect? books and happy thoughts
3. What did you want to be when you were little? a teacher, perhaps?
4. What is your biggest pet-peeve? smoking, being late, being cold
5. What is something you've always wanted to learn? how to act and feel calm (and Spanish)
6. What is your favorite movie? I'm not a movie or TV person, but I really love remembering oldies like Empire Records, Romie and Michelle's High School Reunion and Superstar
